headhunter for the dc

My copy of headhunter arrived yesterday, so i finally got a chance to take a go at it. its an action/adventure type game. I don't understand why this didnt get released stateside but thats another issue....
anyway the graphics are terrific. I play alot of puzzle imports that dont take advantage of the the power of my little biege box, i almost forgot what it could do. since it is graphic heavy i figured i would see more slow downs (like in shenmue) but i didn't notice any. Nice little plot remains me of a movie, you play jack wade the best headhunter you lose your memory and your trying to piece it all together and solve a murder. (the short version) controls are not difficult it plays from a 3rd party perspective when sneaking about and shooting 'da enemy' or riding a motorcycle. (my favorite part) so far i like it, remains me of mgs2 but it's no 'mgs2-killer' i keep hearing that but i dont think so. one good difference it doesnt have as many cut scenes and movies that mgs2 has
if you have a dc, and dont want it to collect dust go by a local importer and pick this up

Wait till you get to the part where you have to drive around town and defuse bombs. This is where I'm stuck as I wasn't able to defuse the last bomb. VERY FRUSTRATING!

Been playing Rez, excellent game!!

The controls on this game seem kind of sticky at first but once you figure out how to utilize them it is quite amazing. Use the R trigger to look around close up in areas it won't allow. There are other little tricks but what appears stiff and awkward is actually a very fluid control system with practice.
